Half Head Man

Kids, this is why you shouldn't do drugs:

Carlos 'Halfy' Rodriguez, who also goes by the name Sosa, lost a large portion of his brain and skull in a crash after flying through his car's windscreen and landing head-first on the road.

In a new video he has used his appearance and story to warn others not to drink and take drugs.
Doctors were forced to cut away large amounts of flesh and bone to help him survive and he has since been able to continue his life in Miami, Florida.

'I was barred out on drugs. I was driving and I hit a pole and flew out the front window and landed on my head,' he said in a new warning message on You Tube.

Showing his head to camera he added: 'And this is how the old boy has come out. That is why it is not good drinking and driving or drugness (sic) and driving. It is no good kids.' [...]

'I was with a cousin and a friend stole the car, there was a near-fatal car accident. As the speed was too fast we lost control of the car and crashed,' he said.

But you'd think that after all that, Halfy would've taken his own advice, but noooo! Read more about the man with half a had over at the Daily Mail: Link

Seems like the lesson here isn't "don't do drugs or drink" or even "don't do drugs or drink before driving", but simply "wear your seatbelt". What happened to him could have happened to a sober driver, too. I was involved in a head-on collision once. It didn't matter that I was completely sober. What saved me was my seatbelt and airbag.

That would have damaged his frontal cortex which is implicated in impulse control. Many call it the "executive" of the brain. Without it, he would have an even harder time resisting drugs. It is possible that prior to the accident he already had frontal lobe impairment which contributed to his addiction.

Anyway, I notice a lot of mocking and judging of this man by people who know absolutely nothing about neuroscience. Knock it off.
